Nirupama Rao leaves for China

B. Muralidhar Reddy



Nirupama Rao

COLOMBO: India's Ambassador-designate to China, Nirupama Rao, left for Beijing from here on Thursday.

Attending the last function here in her capacity as the High Commissioner of India to Sri Lanka, Ms. Rao fondly recalled her association with the island nation during her over two year long tenure.

She gifted eight TARA (Technology and Action for Rural Advancement) handlooms and accessories to the tsunami-affected weavers of Maruthumunai (Amparai district) and Ollikulam (Batticaloa district) in a simple ceremony held at the High Commission.

A statement said the High Commission worked with various stakeholders, including the Government of Sri Lanka and non-governmental organisations, with the objective of providing traction to a larger programme for the revival of the handloom industry in eastern Sri Lanka.
